American trooops, as well as 140,000 South Vietnamese, were evacuated by helicopter after South Vietnam collapsed. About 500,00 South Vietnamese moved into the United States. The Vietnam War cost the United States $118,000,000,000, with 56,000 dead and 300,000 wounded. This was the largest, most frustrating war in US history and it wounded our self-esteem and economic muscle.
